Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults and others who have physical challenges. The therapists at Summit Physical Therapy utilize the Safety Overhead System (can hold up to 300lbs), which will help clients regain their confidence, balance, and coordination.
Our therapists can do one-on-one detailed assessment of your condition using Biodex Fall Risk assessment systems and many other fall risk scales and develop a personalized treatment plan to build strength, endurance, and increase functional activities and proper gait training to prevent future falls.
In fact, the balance and gait systems both rely on different body systems like the inner ear, the eyes, the joint-muscle-nerve system, and cognitive functions. Our therapists provide treatment for the following conditions to improve your personal safety:
- Balance disorders due to muscle weakness
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Parkinson’s disease
- Peripheral neuropathy
